This report includes case studies of 47+ airport energy efficiency programs with full contact information including address, phone, and email.

Soaring energy-related facility costs at airports can decimate bottomlines. This report examines the greening of airport facilities including federal initiatives, private programs, and alternative fuel vehicle programs in use.

You also receive profiles of major developers and contractors that specialize in planning and installing green energy initiatives at airport, including contact information.

The The Air Transport Association of America acknowledged the need to address emission of greenhouse gas from airline operations. It joined with the International Air Transport Association in adopting ambitious targets to mitigate GHG emissions from the airline industry including:

- Continue industry fuel (and, hence, CO2) efficiency improvements, resulting in an average annual CO2 efficiency improvement of 1.5 percent per year on a revenue ton mile basis through 2020;
- Cap industry-wide CO2 emissions from 2020 (carbon-neutral growth) subject to critical aviation infrastructure and technology advances achieved by the industry and government; and
- Contribute to an industry-wide goal of reducing CO2 emissions by 50 percent by 2050.

This report provides detailed Airport Energy Case Studies of airport green initiatives for 40+ facilities, and is a comprehensive guide to understanding regulations and initiatives in the green airport industry.
